The small victories are often the ones that feel the best, coz they help you stay positive on the way to achieve the big goals, help you stay in touch with the changes you are making and help you stay on the case!
The victories I take pleasure in at the moment include: doing at least 2 workout videos a day, no cake or pudding on most days, and losing 2lbs in the last week!


Bring on next week emoticon

That is great. You are doing fantastic. You can totally break through that number.

Thank you all for the great advice. I actually seem to lose better when I stay near the top of my calorie range for some reason. I lost about 70 lbs last year but just recently joined Spark People to help with this last 20 lbs. I know everyone plateaus for a while at some point in their weight loss journey so I'm not discouraged. This is the first time I've ever lost weight and kept it off without gaining any back so I'm happy for now.

Make the Nutrition Tracker your bible. Learn it, live it, love it. Commit to it. Follow its commandments: do not exceed the bottom line ranges for daily calories, carbs, fat, and protein. Eat good, healthy food all the time. When you splurge, work the splurge into the daily ranges, and then party with a conscience.

If you do that alone, you will not only break through, but you will push forward to victory. You will see unbelievable success within a year. Also, if you add thirty minutes cardio and ten minutes strength training five days a week, heads will turn and jaws will drop by spring of next year. I kid you not.

Spark On!

Congrats on losing the four pounds! To break through to the weight you want to be, have you tried adjusting your calories down slightly? I'd try that or bump up your exercise a little bit consistently. Pick something you can stick with though. Good luck...I know you can do it!

Totally possible, just change one thing....march in place while brushing your teeth, take the stairs, do 25 push ups each day....make one small new habit and you've got this.

Lost 4 lbs this last week. I've been at this weight several times over the last few months but keep bouncing back and forth with the same 4-5 lbs. Just have to wait and see if I can break through and go under this weight next weigh in. :)
